Amazing shot! Perfect panning technique!
Wish the knight would point the lance forward...

Re: Like it, good technique [Panning Pic]

That was rather nice, though there are two things which you probably couldn't control, the light coloured vertical lances in the background, which break up the nice horizontal streaks of your pan shot, and the fact that horses dont move completely linearly, so in getting the fine pan, the horses hindquarters moving up and down blur a little.

It was a good attempt with nice colours and you avoided most unneccessary blur.

Nice one,

Regards

Victor

Re: Like it, good technique [Panning Pic]

Yes agreed....I'm a guest, and it wasn't a set up shot, so I'm at the mercy of where I am standing to afford the best shot. I was with a friend who was also shooting this, and it was his first time, so I wanted a position for him to shoot the knights coming the other way (with the sunlight on their fronts). Since I literally have hundreds of frozen knight action shots, I wanted to try something new.

Only a touch, but the LucisArts exaggerated the background, so I needed to tone it down a bit.

Yes, I love shooting RenFest. I look forward to it every year.

Re: Jousting Knight [Panning Pic]

I lowered the ISO a bit more so that I wasn't going into too small of an aperture.
